Mrs Roper's Class
Summer Term 2
We used text mapping and actions to retell ‘The Wolves in the Walls’ Story by Neil Gaiman. At the end of the story (after the wolves had gone), the main character, Lucy, starts to hear elephants in the Walls. This got us imagining what else could be hiding in our houses!
Tigers in the Tanks?
Buzzards in the Basement?
Lions in the loft?
Cats in the curtains?
We had great fun innovating our own stories!
Clay Wolf Eyes
Locating and Exploring Russia
Science- Can you smell as well as a wolf?
Summer Term 1
Listening only to the soundtrack, we imagined what the setting of this story was like. Words such as calm, peaceful and tranquil were suggested as we collected vocabulary to describe it.
Then, the OTHERS came.. and the setting changed. We wrote sentences that contrasted past and present.
Spring Term 2
After listening to the opening chapter of ‘Wind in the Willows’, we imagined what it must have been like for Mole seeing a river for the first time. In writing, we used imaginative language to describe the sights and sounds of a river.
In reading, we looked at a poem called ‘The River’s Story’ which was told from the point of view of the river. The river told us how its life had changed due to pollution. We then learned about different types of pollution and their causes.
Trip to the Water Treatment Works
“Children, come and find me if you wish,
I am your inheritance.”
This line from the poem motivated us to write letters to various important people to ask for help in dealing with pollution. We used persuasive devices and a formal tone in our writing.
